This Image Is Why You Should Never Apply Fake Tan Before Hitting The Gym

by | Oct 5, 2017

Women are absolute guns at getting sh*t done but there’s two tasks you should not be combining, if this woman’s experience is anything to go off.

Scottish lass Eve recently tweeted a snap of her fake tan fail after applying a faux glow and hitting the gym.

This resulted in her leg being branded with the Adidas logo from her leggings.

“That’s the last time a workout with tan on btw,” she captioned the post, which has now been retweeted thousands of times.

Others weighed in with their own experiences…

And even Adidas jumped on board…

For the record, tanning studio Colour Me Bronze recommends avoiding exercise after being spray tanned as sweat acts as a barrier to the formula, stopping the tan from developing in the areas you’re perspiring. They say to delay your workout at least until you’ve had your first shower.

People Are Sharing The Relationship Red Flags They Wish They’d Seen On Twitter

Dating is a minefield. With social distancing restrictions still largely in place, it’s fair to say that most of us are resorting to the apps when it comes to making a lasting connection - or simply looking for a short-lived good time. But even then, the platforms are fraught with their own challenges. From bios that offer a scattering of emojis and one-liners that leave little to be desired, to the profile pics that are at least a decade old, red flags are bound to come up even before you’ve met in person. But where things truly get interesting is in the dating phase. Anyone who has ever been in a relationship to see it end badly can likely admit that the thing that saw you end it, was probably also one you saw coming from the start. These relationship ‘red flags’ present themselves early on, but of course, in the throes of buddying romance, we ignore them, our rose-coloured glasses turning the red into a warm and inviting shade of pink. 

Thankfully, those on Twitter are here to ensure you spot the red flags early in order to avoid the devastation that comes with wasted time and a broken heart. The red flag emoji has been taking over the Twitter world as people share the range of red flags they know now to avoid in relationships and dating. These are the warning signs in what people say and do that signal something more unfavourable, and in some instances such traits can even lead to deeper, even abusive characteristics. 

According to data released by Twitter, between October 10th and 13th, the app saw a 21 per cent increase in the red flag emoji usage, with a staggering 1.5 million tweets shared during this time. It appears that when it comes to red flags, we’ve all seen them and can either relate or offer up our own advice. While some of the Tweets can only garner an aggressive head nod in appreciation, others are more lighthearted and show the intensely personal nature of dating whereby something that might not affect someone else, proves disastrous for another. For instance, one Twitter user shared the Tweet, “I got an Android” and to be honest, yeah, we get it. Who wants to be living in that world of GREEN TEXT! Another shared, “Shrek is not that good.” Disliking Shrek? It’s impossible. 

Below are some of the best examples of the red flag Tweet we’ve seen.
